What this paper is about
How this paper will be taught
There are 3 twohour lectures per week. They provide a medium for presenting the background, theoretical material, and general information for the paper. Lecture attendance is expected as the lectures will not be recorded. The course notes provided and the text book references are not necessarily comprehensive and it is very likely that additional material will be covered in lectures. You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
There will be an inclass written test during the lecture on Friday 27 January, which all students have to attend.
There are 5 supervised onehour computer labs per week, for students to work on their assignments. All programming assignments will be verified during such a lab session, usually on the Wednesday following the assignment deadline. Exact dates will be announced for each assignment. Students are required to attend and explain their solution to the lecturer on this occasion.

Assessments
How you will be assessed
Internal assessment is primarily through weekly programming assignments. Detailed descriptions will be handed out in the lectures and will be
available for download from Moodle. Each assignment is followed by a compulsory verification session.
There will also be a theory test held in class on Friday 27 January.
The fourth assignment is a larger project, and students will be given two weeks to complete it. However, there will be a handin and verification session after the first week during which students need to be able to explain their design and demonstrate their progress.
Students will also be required to complete six quizzes online in Moodle, the first of which will be due on Friday 6 January.
In addition to internal assessment, all students must sit the final exam and achieve at least 40% in it.
The percentages of the overall mark in the table below are calculated for the case that the student's internal assessment is better than the final exam. Otherwise, if the final exam is better, it will be worth 67% and the internal assessment weights will be lower.
An overall mark of 50% is required to pass this paper, with a minimum of 40% in the final exam. Also, the practical programme must be completed to the satisfaction of the paper coordinator.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 100:0. There is no final exam.
